STORY & PHOTOS

Though Showtime’s gruesomely delightful hit “Dexter” is set in Miami, most of the filming takes place in and around Long Beach, CA.

Production uses several houses in the Los Altos neighborhood for the homes of the show’s characters. San Anseline Avenue is where you can find Rita’s house (2348):

You can tell they’ve added the peachy-colored decor to make the house seem more “Miami”. It’s definitely not there in real life:

Next door (at 2354) is the house of the neighbor with the noisy dog from the first season.

Next door at 2421 Chatwin Avenue is Angel’s former home from season one; Angel gets drunk and Dexter tries to drop him off there.
